On March 25, 2017, a group of 9 nonspeaking autistics from Northern Virginia (a.k.a. “The Tribe”) and 20 University of Virginia undergraduates gathered in Charlottesville to discuss, among other things, motor differences in autism with Dr. Jana Iverson of the University of Pittsburgh. The two groups of students are participants in a year-long seminar called “The Science & Lived Experience of Autism.” This video captures highlights from their fourth in-person meeting.
